About our next Spiritual Tour

In the Summer of 2020, you can enjoy 12 days in Germany, Austria, and Italy. You'll explore Innsbruck, and perhaps have the opportunity to see the Oberammergau Passiodn Play, (Tickets are difficult to get), and spend time in Venice, Florence, Assisi, and three days in Rome.

We're also very excited to add on a trip to Taizé France and then spend three days in retreat along with three days in Paris!

 This is a once in a lifetime opportunity. At each place we'll pray, enjoy some quiet time, reflect on scripture and our our relationship with God.



About the Oberammergau Passion Play

Since 1634, the most famous Passion Play in the world has taken place in Oberammergau. The tradition, maintained and experienced almost without interruption for over 380 years, of putting on the play about the suffering, death and resurrection of Christ every ten years, will be continued for the 42nd time in 2020. It is regarded as the most important Passion Play in the world. 

The village at the edge of the Bavarian Alps expects approximately 500,000 visitors for the passion play, over half of which will be international guests. 

All the actors of the world's largest amateur dramatic performance come from the village. 

Over 2,000 Oberammergau villagers will participate in the 2020 Passion Play.



About us and where we've been.

Rev. Dr. "Terry" and Joanne Van Hook have shared over 40 years of life, love, ministry and teaching together. They bring a wealth of insight into God's Heavenly Realm here on earth and what's needed in our time of loneliness and anxiety.  

"Joanne and I have been blessed with a remarkable journey of faith in God's Unconditional Love.

We'd love to share it with you as we deepen the spiritual life with every place we visit. We enjoy finding inspiring places and faithful insights sure to inspire everyone.

Each trip deepens us in the unconditional love and hope in Jesus Christ.  Each place we visit fills us with the power of God's Holy Spirit. 

Our pilgrimage journeys and our workshop/seminars engage us with the world in all its beauty and challenges as well as God's presence, love and inviting grace.

This is why we've formed AGAPE´ JOURNEYS. We'd love to share our discoveries with you, your church, and those around you.

We offer not only local and global pilgrimages, but local church Coaching, Spiritual Direction, Life coaching, Classes/Seminars on Spiritual Disciplines, Tools for Transformation and Unconditional (Real) Love.“

Joanne and I have been  blessed with a remarkable journey of faith in God's Unconditional Love."

Our Prayer for you...

We know that Christ is calling us all  

to a renewal of unconditional love and living 

right now in God's Heavenly Realm.

It is our prayer for you and those around you 

that the power of the Holy Spirit will sweep through you, your family and your community 

and ignite a passion for  authentic compassion in Jesus 

and a sharing of his agapé love.

And that this power will lead you to be a deeper disciple, 

a more fulfilled Citizen of Heaven.

Amen?  Amen!"
